How Does Scar Removal Work?
Scar revision aims to improve the appearance of scars. The goal of scar revision is to reduce the size, height, and redness and make it less noticeable. Our award-winning ENT, Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr Deniz Kanliada will discuss the options with you and will find the most suitable option for you.
Scar Revision Techniques
During this procedure, the old scar is surgically excised, and the skin edges are carefully sutured together to create a new scar that is less noticeable. This technique is especially beneficial for long or wide scars, as it allows for the precise removal of the scar tissue and ensures a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.
Laser Resurfacing for Scarring
Laser resurfacing involves using a laser to remove the top layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production in the deeper layers. Laser resurfacing is best suited for certain types of scars, such as acne or superficial scars.
Injections such as steroids or dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of scars. A number of injections will be injected into the scar to help reduce swelling and flatten the scar.
